The 2015 vintage was another challenging season in Paso Robles. We began our spring with marginal moisture, the product of meager winter rains. This dry start was followed by above average warm temperatures into April, at which point we experienced an unusual cool down. This cooling lasted through May, which gave us a tough start to the growing season. The volatile temperatures along with untimely winds resulted in poor flowering and fruit set, equaling a less than average crop. Temperatures remained moderate until an extended heat spike in early September, moderating back to normal temperatures to finish the season. Overall, we experienced a vigorous early harvest season with good conditions for ripening.
